Ok, this should be simple enough, but for the life of me I can't figure it out.

My D300 will not allow me to shoot over 1/60 if my (external) flash is on. I found in the camera the max shutter speed, which is set at 1/250 and then below that is a max flash speed, which is indeed set to 1/60. The problem is, that is the fastest it can be set to. How do I remove this or am I looking in the right spot? It is completely ticking me off!

Thanks for the help!

If you're looking at e2, that's the slowest shutter speed for flash.
Are you in Manual?

Otherwise, in any other mode, the camera sets the shutter to 1/60 when the flash is attached in low light situations. That's the slowest it will go, it can go up but not slower than 1/60.
The Definitive Answer:

Just wanted to bold that to seperate from the other stuff in the thread. It has already been answered. Your flash on camera can ONLY go up to 1/60, however your flashes high-sync mode can go up to however high the flash is capable of. For the built-in flash, it is 320th of a second. For a speedlight - it is 1/8000 of a second.
